Dental emergency Singapore can strike at anytime, anywhere. When they do, the discomfort will affect work, sleep and function. Here are 5 dental emergencies which should never be ignored:
Sharp, intermittent pain in your teeth usually indicate the presence of bacteria which have traversed into the nerve space on one or more of your teeth. This type of pain keeps you up at night, wakes you up at night and can be very severe. It is usually not alleviated by paracetamol.
Our emergency dental clinic in Singapore will be able to diagnose the problem and provide you with a range of affordable treatment options and even begin that same day.
2. Gum Swelling
Gum swelling indicates a high load of bacteria in and around your gums or a specific tooth. It normally is an indication of a localized gum infection. If left untreated, this can lead to facial swellings or even worse.
Not only is our dental clinic open on weekends, but our dentists in Singapore will be able to diagnose the cause of the gum swelling and relieve it for you that same day.
Cavities, despite the fact that they may not be painful are a serious dental condition not to be ignored. They allow bacteria to enter the inner portion of your teeth and attack the nerve in one of more teeth resulting in pain.
Cavities should be treated by our dentists open Saturdays immediately to prevent more complicated work being needed.
4. Bleeding Gums
Bleeding gums are an indication that there are bacteria deep underneath your gums. It is the body’s way of letting us know that we need a scaling and polishing or in some cases, gum treatment. It should never be ignored because bacteria can progress into further into the gum releasing toxins which erode the bone around your teeth. This results in the loosening of teeth with time.
5. Broken Teeth
Broken teeth can be caused by trauma or due to decay which erodes away at the tooth over time which can cause toothaches. Our doctor in Singapore will diagnose the cause of the break and determine how deep the break is. We are then able to provide you with a range of options to treat the broken tooth on the same day.
